Today is a big night for the dogs, and at the Westminster Dog Show, Dogs Against Romney will be making their stand. I stand with them. Romney is the candidate of the 1 percent (of humans). He has been known to treat workers like dogs (when he fires them to make money in what Rick Perry called vulture capitalism). He treats his Republican opponents like dogs (except Ron Paul, who becomes a poodle when it comes to Romney while his campaign fades). But it is the dogs who speak out tonight at Westminster!
Make no mistake, I am a voice for the 99 percent of the people, and 100 percent of the dogs. Mitt Romney has nothing in common with the former and is not the friend of the latter. Of course, in Romney’s world of the 1 percent, he claims that a dog on the roof of a speeding car on a family vacation is being treated well. Ask the dogs!
But then, in Romney’s world of the 1 percent, men like him are born to raise millions of dollars to run attack campaigns against their opponents. To Romney they are to be treated like the very poor (who he does not care about), jobless workers (someone has to lose so the vultures can make the most money, right?) and of course the dogs (what’s so bad about the dogs riding on the roof to the guy living well inside it, right?).
So: Here come the Romney attack ads against Santorum in Michigan, the vulture politics of the vulture capitalist who sets new standards of negative campaigning!
But here come the dogs in defense of truth, justice and the American way at the Westminster Dog Show this evening.
I cast my lot with the 99 percent of humans and the 100 percent of dogs, and I have no doubt:
George Romney would be standing with the dogs, and against the vulture politics of the vulture capitalist who saturates the airwaves with negative attack ads, fires workers to make a buck and forces dogs to ride on the top of cars while speeding down the highways of the 1 percent.
